SPDY in Varnish ?

We've discussed SPDY several times. SPDY is interesting but it would be
premature to implement it this early. SPDY isn't even an official IETF draft
yet and Google is still experimenting with it. I think, for us to consider
implementing it, we would need at least two things to happen. 1) An IETF
standard and 2) browser adoption. Even then it might not make sense. The
earlier drafts of SPDY weren't very proxy friendly. I'm not familiar with
Googles infrastructure but they might not use generic web proxies in their
web applications so it wasn't relevant for them.

Until then I think it's better to sit tight and se who wins. HTTP-MPLEX,
Waka and SCTP are other technologies that operate in the same problem space.
We have no idea who might win.
